5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing but tough!, 9 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Ridge Racer Unbounded - Limited Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Ridge racer unbounded on first looks appears to be an arcade style game, it really isn't. Read on for why, but firstly I'm addressing two other issues...

First off: I have to take issue with the makers use of the title, I'm pretty damn sure "Unbounded" is not proper grammatical english.

Secondly: You may have heard tons of moaners saying this game is too dark, I have no issues here. Sure on default it is, but just go to options & turn brightness up & on full it looks like a normal daylight race or if you do want slighly grittier feel adjust slighly darker. If your tv is hd compatible & you are using a hdmi cable from Xbox360 to tv you shouldn't have a problem.

So, why is the game not arcadey at all? - Simple, it's tough. But I get the feeling it's tough because the makers want you to learn & feel you have achieved the win by yourself & not as simple as Need for speed, Burnout, Split second or other racers can feel. Ok, you don't have to worry about manual gear changes - but then this is no F1 or Project Gotham either.

You will find at first you can't come better than 11th place, then you figure out how to really drive: using the drifting, drafting, corner & braking at the right times & the right time to use that boost power - then you start to come 1st a lot more.

The games has a variety of modes: straight forward domination races, time attacks & races where you don't rely on domination destroy tactics too.

At the end of the day if like me you are sick of finishing a racing game within a week or two you'll love this game. Especially now you can buy this second hand for around £6+

If this game is too tough for you buy Burnout or Split second instead. Lasting value & tough but fair gameplay? Buy it! NOW!
